In this lyrical coming-of-age story set in rural 1940s Vietnam, 15-year-old Kim (The Lu Le) fills in for his ill father (Huu Thanh Nguyen) and leads the two family buffalo to high ground during the rainy season. When he joins a rough band of nomadic buffalo herders also on the trail, Kim sets out on an eye-opening journey in which he discovers freedom, violence and love -- as well as secrets about his past that will change his life forever.
